Language, Literacy and Literature combines concepts of language, literature and literacy within a pedagogical framework that leads readers through a series of learning processes. In other words, it is as much a book about teaching English as it is a book about learning how to learn aboutteaching. The book provides models for pre-service teachers to help identify the kinds of dispositions towards learning that a teacher needs to develop, such as curiosity, collaboration and willingness to "give things a go". It further challenges the pre-service teacher to question what they think they know,as well as discover what they need to know. A range of practical and relevant exercises and activities assist in building habits of reflexive practice.
